9. Buenos Aires: Empanada, Asado, Mate & Dessert Cooking Class
If you are tired of cooking the same dishes every week and wish to try something different, this class to make fresh empanadas, asado, mate, and chocotorta will be perfect for you.
Meet your group in front of the local market Mercado San Telmo, and feel like a local as you shop for your own fresh ingredients. Then, move to the nearby cooking location and start preparing the popular local dishes.
Empanada is a baked or fried turnover consisting of pastry and meat or veggie filling, and one of the symbols of Argentine food. It has the perfect form to preserve all the flavors of the dish.
At its core, asado is meat grilled in its purest form, a method for barbecuing especially used in Argentina. You'll also create your own mate, a typical Argentine drink, which can be drunk cold or hot.
Finally, close off your cooking experience with a traditional local dessert: a chocotorta, or chocolate cake.
This is a great opportunity to travel with your senses, and get inspired while you travel or live in Argentina. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you have about Argentine food.
